Re: How is your Saturn gaming going?

New to the racket-boy forums have a pretty nice collection for the Saturn(Panzer Dragoon Saga, Dragonforce, Magical Knight Rayearth, The legend of Oasis, and some others). Unfortunately I don't have a good memory card and I don't have the time to play through some of my collection in one sitting. Pretty neat story how i got the collection, the Saturn wasn't even on my radar before i got it. Have had a lot of fun with some of the other games in my collection and what I've played of those with longer stories.

You do know that you can replace the system battery yes? (CR2032 flat round battery).
Won't hold your save forever (and a somewhat limited space, especially for Dragon force), but if you leave your system plugged in, it will last a few months at least.
Otherwise, the official memory cart is worth the $30-something you'll spend on it.

Oh, and if you got those games for free or next to nothing, I hate you (just kidding...but seriously :P ).
...just another lost soul...

I fired up Shinobi Legions last night. Is this game really really difficult or am I just bad at games? It might be the latter cuz I feel as though I've made this same comment a lot lately. :lol:

That game is difficult. I haven't finished it yet.

The level in the building with the lifts you can cut and the spears in the ground is a pain in the ass.

I hear the PAL soundtrack is considered way better for the game. How was the US one?

I wasn't aware that they had differing soundtracks. I can't say that I noticed this one as being "awesome" or "terrible." So whatever that means.

From what I understand it was pretty much entirely redone for the PAL release to make it sound more like Revenge of Shinobi. The US and Japanese games share the original soundtrack.

Same. I really want to beat it someday, as it's a very impressive title overall.

it is! Now that I've gotten the hang of the pacing, I actually think this is a really good Shinobi entry. I always got the impression it was kind of slept on in the series, but I'm having a great time with it.
